  •     Dear community members:
        As of June 30, 2013 the Crookston Area Community Fund (CACF) will have run out of time to reach its first Crookston Area Community Fund endowment goal of $50,000.  Will you be the one to take the fund over the top?  Every one of the donations made before the first goal deadline of June 30th is reached will be fully matched by the Otto Bremer Foundation and also matched with an additional 10 percent by the Northwest Minnesota Foundation.  Your gift at this time could be worth 210 percent to CACF.
        With the encouragement of the Otto Bremer Foundation and the Northwest Minnesota Foundation, Crookston, along with four other communities, has been selected to host an endowed community fund.  Over time, with the generosity of people like you, the endowment and available grant funds will continue to grow and become a permanent source of support for projects that are an enduring part of Crookston’s future.  Already CACF grant funds have been contributed towards six important community projects or services, and in the coming months CACF will announce another grant round opportunity.
        Become a part of Crookston’s future and help CACF to Create Crookston through your contribution to the Crookston Area Community Fund. Donations of any size will help us reach this goal and may come from individuals, organizations, or businesses.
